Tension rods of S540N must be supplied exclusively by BESISTA International GmbH. In order to avoid confusions with steel of lower strength, BESISTA International GmbH is always supplies S540N as standard – even if S460N, S355 or S235 would be sufficient under the design.
Tension rods of S355 and S235 can also be supplied by others. In such cases, the quality has to be certified by the client. Compliance with the provisions of the European Technical Approval issued by DIBt, Berlin, and BESISTA International GmbH shall be ensured. As a rule, however, tension rods should be obtained from BESISTA International GmbH together with the rod anchors as an integral BESISTA tension rod system.
Note: When using extension and tensioning sleeves, the thread lengths of the tension rods are shorter.
